C onservation Comments An Orderly Plan For Improvement By IRVTN ROSS Conservationist As we get underway with 1963, let's take a few minutes to review the procedure under which we operate. There are two basic functions of the Soil Conservation Service personnel who work with the farmers of Franklin County. First of all the technicians are available in an ^ advisory capacity to assist *' with the planning ^ work. This assistance allows the farmer to develop a complete conserva- Irvin tion plan for his farm, using the technicial knowledge of the SCS personnel as a guide. Also, it allows the farmer to, call on the technicians for help with a specific problem in need of a solution. Secondly, SCS personnel are assigned the duty of field layout for conservation practices approv ed for ACP cost-sharing. In performing this duty the technician is using his knowledge and experience to provide the farmer with the best conservation treatment that can be worked out for the particular farm. Since no two farms are alike and the needs of any two farms vary, then by necessity each individual job becomes a project of its own. Each terrace, pond or waterway must be designed to conform to the topography of the land. II must suit the farmer for whom it is being built. It must adhere to the construction specifications ol ACP cost - sharing remains the workable and enduring conservation benefits. .The operating procedure for ACP sost • sharing remains the same as in past years. Applica tion must be made at the ASCS office prior to beginning the work The request is referred to the SCS for field layout and deter mination of need. A contractor is selected by the farmer, and he work is completed according o specifications. It is hoped that those landowners who contemplate doing conservation work in 1963 begin now to make their plans. By proceeding in an orderly manner the ob can be completed in a mini- num of time to the mutual satis- 'action of all concerned. Britain Would Push Into Market* LONDON (AP) — Britain announced it will push ahead for admission into the European Common Market despite French hostility and won open support from West Germany and Belgium. Italy and Holland gave implied backing to the British bid for membership. Only Luxembourg remained silent publicly in the six-nation economic-political bloc. The Foreign Office, with the authority of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan's Cabinet, said Britain intends to keep trying to get into the market. At the same time the Foreign Office expressed hope France will have second thoughts about its rejection of American Polaris missiles. President Charles de Gaulle's rejection of the Polaris missile offer and his tough stand on Britain's entry into the Common Market were widely viewed in Europe as a double blow at the Western Alliance. Pending a full Cabinet discussion of the crisis that has arisen in the wake of De Gaulle's declaration Monday, the comments of the Foreign Office were restrained.

OLLAR and SENSE FARMING From Your Full-Service Bank TEST SOYBEAN SEED FOR GERMINATION well ahead of seeding tune. This is particularly important if beans were combined under poor conditions last fall. If your seed tests below 80% germination screen to remove splits. Treat immediately before fungi and bacteria reduce germination further. Use Arasan or Spergon at the rate of 2 ounces per bushel. When planting tune rolls around don't forget to adjust seeding rate according to germination. DAIRY BARN CONDITIONS can greatly affect the size "of your milk check. Cows produce best when the relative humidity is 75% and temperature ranges from 45 to 75 degrees. Dairy barns are often cold and damp in winter because inadequate insulation and ventilation cause walls and ceiling to "sweat." Proper ventilation can give you 4 or 5 gallons more milk daily from each 20 cows. If barn temperature is kept above freezing, fans that deliver about 90 cubic feet of air per minute will prevent excessive moisture. A GOOD FARM BUDGET can help you imarove your operation. If you figure income and expenses b y commodity, you can compare profits from the various farm enterprises. This way you can cull those farm activities that aren't contributing to your total farm income. Now's the time to lay out budgets for the year ahead. You will find your-1962 income tax reports makes a helpful bench-mark from which to start. NOW IS THE TIME TO GET MACHINERY REPAIRED and ready to go. Major overhauls and repairs should be taken care of while shops are not busy with rush jobs. Parts and mechanics may not be available if you wait until the last minute. A few hours' delay at planting time can be very costly. ... The annual meeting of the Franklin County Soil Conservation district will be held Wednesday, January 30.
